Every ingredient in our range of raw dog food is sourced obtained from wild or sustainable sources, adhering to the most stringent ethical standards. Our unwavering commitment to animal welfare is reflected in our exclusive partnerships with suppliers who align with our deeply held values.

What are the Health Benefits of Paleo Plus Pork & Apple?

Paleo Plus Pork & Apple has been specially formulated to provide optimum nourishment for your dog.

Pork is rich in B vitamins including vitamins B1, B3, B5, B6 and B12, which are important for heart health, brain function, and the production of energy. Not only this but pork is an excellent source of protein which your dog needs for the maintenance and growth of muscles and cells.

Phosphorous, potassium, zinc, and selenium are all essential minerals that are present in pork, all of which help to promote good cardiovascular health and nerve health, strengthen the immune system, and maintain healthy hormones and body fluids.

Understanding the significance of organotherapy for dogs, where each organ nourishes its corresponding organ, such as feeding liver for liver issues, we’ve curated a diverse selection of offal including:

  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Kidney
  • Heart

Organ meat contains an abundance of nutrients, essential for your dog's health including vitamins A, D, B12, iron, selenium, and amino acids.

Unlike some pork-based products known for their higher fat content, our expert crafting ensures that this product remains exceptionally lean and adheres to the principles of a ‘Paleo’ diet. Our commitment to using lean cuts of pork transforms this into a high-protein, nourishing meal for your dog.

To elevate the taste sensation, we include juicy British apples which are high in vitamin C to keep your dog performing at their best. They even help freshen breath too. Vitamin C is important to include in your dog's diet as it cannot be stored by the body, so a regular intake will help keep your dog’s immune system tip top.

Is Paleo Plus Pork & Apple Suitable for My Dog?

Paleo Plus Pork & Apple raw dog food is suitable for dogs of any age including puppies from 8 weeks old.

If you are trialling an elimination diet with your dog, Pork & Apple is a great choice as it is a single-protein meal.

Dogs suffering from pancreatitis can be fed this meal due to the incredibly low fat content of just 5%. This lean raw dog food is also ideal for those who would like their dog to lose a few pounds!

This nutritious product is also ideal for dogs who need an immune boost, whether they have reoccurring infections, are recovering from an operation, or require a bit more energy, Paleo Plus Pork & Apple provides a potent mix of ingredients to boost the immune system.

If you suspect or know that your dog has an intolerance to pork or any grass-fed animal, we do not recommend feeding this product.

How to Feed and Store Paleo Plus Pork & Apple Raw Dog Food

Paleo Plus Pork & Apple needs to be stored in the freezer and defrosted at the bottom of the fridge, in a sealed Tupperware.

We highly recommend defrosting and keeping the raw meat in a sealed container to avoid any risk of contamination with other items in your fridge. For more information, please see our blog ‘Hygiene Instructions’.

Once the food has been fully defrosted, it will last in the fridge for 2 days. Depending on how much you need to feed your dog per meal, you can either weigh this it out on scales or portion it by eye (for instance if your dog requires 250g per meal, you can feed half of the pack).

To work out how much your dog should be fed, you can use our Raw Food Calculator. Please note that for puppies, you should input their ideal adult weight and not their current weight.

It’s important with a raw dog food diet to feed a variety of different meats to elevate your dog’s nutritional profile. Different animals contain different nutrients, so rotating these meals each week is ideal.
